How is Mexico trying to conserve their forests?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mexico has been taking a unique approach to forest conservation that attempts to balance conservation efforts with economic and social impacts on poor communities. About 80% of the forestland in Mexico is owned by local communities (called “ejidos”), and the government provides subsidies so the local communities can manage forest resources in accordance with responsible forest practices recommended by the Forest Stewardship Council. FSC is an independent non-governmental organization that will issue a certification that a particular forest is being managed in a way that complies with its standards. Nonprofit organizations also provide support to Mexican communities for conservation of forest resources.
